The Coming Iranian Hostage Crisis

Reuters: Iran official confirms detention of 4th U.S-Iranian

This is unacceptable. There should be protests around the world, condemning the detention of innocent civilians. More sanctions should be coming from the U.N. Why isn't this happening?

Reuters: Iran may be holding ex-FBI agent, US official says

Iran claims they don't know what happened to the former agent. How can they not? If a former intelligence agent from your archnemesis country visits yours, would you NOT keep an eye on them? Either the Iranian government kidnapped him, or something happened to him they don't want to tell us. Either way, it's not a good situation.

Hey Simmons,

I tend to agree that Iran shouldn't be holding these people. However, the US moral authorithy has been undermined by several things. 1) Congress' adoption of the Military Tribunals Act, which removes habeas corpus from anyone deemed to be an "enemy combatant" by the President, 2) Secret renditions, including people who were just passing through US airports, later found to be innocent 3) the US holding of the Iranian Yourdkhani family in an ICE prison when their plane, traveling to Canada, was stopped in Puerto Rico after another passenger showed signs of a heart attack, 4) the US holding Iranian diplomats in Iraq, 5)The CIA directing Pakistani terrorist operations in Iran.
